Update #2 (May 26, 2023): HoYoverse has now announced a new date for the Honkai: Star Rail 1.1 livestream, moving it to Saturday, May 27, 2023. The livestream was initially planned to be aired on May 26, but had to be delayed due to unforeseen technical difficulties. HoYoverse will give out 100 Stellar Jade to players as an apology.

Update #1 (May 26, 2023): Looks like the Honkai: Star Rail 1.1 livestream is delayed for technical reasons, according to a Tweet sent out by HoYoverse. We've already collected all the information about 1.1's character banners from the Chinese stream for you, but we'll have to wait for the English stream to commence for any promo codes.

Original (May 22, 2023): After a launch that could not have been more successful, Honkai: Star Rail is about to get its first update – version 1.1 is scheduled for early June. HoYoverse is following the playbook established by Genshin Impact to a tee, which includes not just a strict and frequent patch cycle, but also the traditional livestreams to give people a taste of what’s to come.

Honkai: Star Rail’s first special program, which details the content of update 1.1, has now been announced for May 26, 2023. It looks like the VA’s of the three upcoming characters Silver Wolf, Yukong, and Luocha will lead us through the show. Aside from information about this trio, you’re guaranteed to find some promo codes granting you free items during the stream.

Here’s where and when you can catch the Honkai: Star Rail 1.1 livestream.

Honkai: Star Rail 1.1 livestream: what to expect

We already mentioned Silver Wolf, Yukong, and Luocha, who are confirmed to join the playable roster in version 1.1 as new characters. That’s not all, however. We can expect the continuation of the main story line as well as new companion missions, for which the livestream will have additional details in store.

There will be a series of fresh events as well, one of which is apparently called Starhunt Game and allows you to earn Stellar Jade and a 4-Star Light Cone for the Nihility. Other time-limited events enable you to earn double rewards from Calyxes and the Simulated Universe. A total of six events seems to be planned for update 1.1, so one per week of the version’s runtime.

In terms of features, it looks like Honkai: Star Rail may receive a chat function in update 1.1, which allows you to message people on your friend list.
